  1. The action is always high tense, and extremely enjoyable.
  2. An average game, with some elements that take it to a higher level. What’s frustrating about it is there aren’t enough of these elements throughout, otherwise it would be a top-notch title.
  3. 79
    The frantic pacing and tremendous atmosphere result in adrenaline rushes that'll give the most hardened shoot-'em-up veteran the shakes.
  4. The selection of vehicles, structured missions objectives, and rewarding bonus system will make this a favorite for anyone who plays it.
  5. The biggest disappointment is the terrible multiplayer options in the game.
  6. The lightsaber challenges are very much on the weaker side of the force, and should have either been worked on longer or left out entirely. [Feb 2003, p.32]
  7. As you can probably tell, the main problem with this game is that it’s scrappy and disjointed. The areas that show flair and imagination are cut short by generic and shockingly unoriginal elements that make you cringe and turn away in embarrassment.
